If you fancy £10,000 worth of fine wine all you have to do is find a buyer for a Georgian house in south east London.
The current owner of the three-storey house measuring over 3,100-square feet, Taylor MW of Montrachet Fine Wine Merchants, is happy to hand over this marvellous haul of alcohol to anyone who can introduce a purchaser.
The purchaser comes out of the bargain well too, with the equivalent amount of wine to be left behind in the house along with a cellar consultation.
‘We have been here for 11 years, but the opportunity came up to buy a property in Westminster where we will be moving in the summer,’ explains Louisa Taylor from Montrachet Fine Wine Merchants.
The Georgian house has served the company well, with the top two floors used to house some members of staff, while the bottom floor was used as offices. However, a new oenophile owner might want to keep the first floor ‘tasting room’ with wooden flooring and large table just as it is.

‘The house is slightly quirky and far cheaper than others in the street,” argues Mrs Taylor. “The exterior has been decorated and is in good nick, while there might need to be a bit of tweaking inside.’
The kitchen is small and could do with expanding, and a potential purchaser needs to see beyond the desks to imagine comfy sofas and tellies in situ, Mrs Taylor argues.
At an asking price of £1.4 million, the house – that comes with a 51-foot garden and in ringing distance of Big Ben – is on the market with agents Frank Harris (020 7620 3400, www.frankharris.co.uk).
